One of the best parts of a workout is getting into the zone as you pump through your routine. You know the feeling — when you’re so focused on driving it home hard that you forget your to-do list, your commitments, even your burning muscles. And one of the best ways to achieve that energy level? Tuning out the world as you blast the perfect playlist through your earbuds.
But what if you want to get that feeling during a group fitness class — where heart-pumping music and killer instructors come together to create one hard-hitting workout? The answer: Club Cycle. And with a new central location, any PGH fitness addict can get to Downtown Pittsburgh for a class that’ll whip you into shape.
Mix it up
Club Cycle’s the real deal. In fact, their aesthetic may remind you more of a night on the town than an afternoon in the gym. Because with strobe lights bumpin’ to the beat of a live DJ as massive screens display the latest music videos, Club Cycle brings the party to any workout.
The team of in-house DJs keep it fresh with a new custom mix each week, ensuring no two classes are the same. And it’s not just the music they’re switching up — expect a new routine each time you step through the door. Because here, the tunes go hand-in-hand with the workout itself, as instructors change up their moves to match the DJ’s rhythm.
But it’s about more than just the music. Club Cycle pushes you to get the real results you’re after. Live performance tracking data and heart rate pods help you determine key fitness stats like calories and mileage. And after getting all pumped up on adrenaline and pulsing beats, recharge with amenities like bottled water, snacks, and sweat towels — on the house.
Sweat it out on Stanwix St.
The studio (Club Cycle’s second) opened their doors right above the 11 Stanwix St. Garage this past April, making attendance almost too easy for any commuter who wants to get their blood pumping after a long day at the office. You can hit the studio during your lunch break for a 35-minute express workout. Or, go the full 45 minutes in an after-work evening class.
Too busy to squeeze in a weekday sweat sesh? Club Cycle offers classes for all you weekend warriors looking to put pedal to the metal before Sunday brunch. But why ride inside when you could pair your workout with an iconic view of PGH? Throughout the summer, Club Cycle also offers periodic Destination Rides on the Mount Washington Overlook.
Whatever your cycling style, their new Downtown studio has the hookup. Take in the feel-good vibe as you ride it out to the beat, then walk out into the rhythm of a downtown Pittsburgh night.
